We love this place and we stay here every time we visit San Carlos. The motel is clean, is walking distance to Rosa's for breakfast and JJ's for dinner (as well as other restaurants), and the prices are great. The decor is 1970's Mediterranean with great vintage light fixtures. This is not a resort and is not fancy, but it IS a perfect option for either a thrifty traveler who appreciates a hotel with character or people who enjoy the "Route 66" style motor lodges. There is parking for each room and a small swimming pool that is well maintained during the high season. The location is right in the middle of town on the main road. Rooms are very quiet despite being right in town. Not a good option for people who love resorts or who only enjoy staying at "tourist hotels". GREAT option for people who like road trips and National parks, who backpack and stay in hostels, and who like to experience the actual towns they visit.
